A Personal Snippet

What brings a smile to my face?
Dancing around the kitchen bench with my three little red-head girls in our PJ's. We occasionally even rope Dad in!
What would you never catch me doing?
Sitting still
Why did I start Be In Blossom?
I can fuse my love of dance and Pilates with my physio hat.
I love babies so even when my children grow up I still get to spend some time with little people.
I was able to work my own hours to allow me to spend more time with my family.

 A Personal Snippet

What brings a smile to my face?
My daughters giggling together, family time and successfully making a new recipe for my daughter who has a long list of allergies (no easy feat!). I also love practising what I preach and enjoying a Yoga or Pilates class as a participant.


What would you never catch me doing?
With two young children, sleeping in past 7am… but oh how I dream of those days!!!

What made me come onboard with Be In Blossom?
I find the transformation of a woman’s body during pregnancy and childbirth (and post-natally) amazing but also understand the incredible challenges it can bring. Pregnancy classes provide the perfect “training” for the huge task of carrying and then delivering a baby.
